This cat will be remembered not only by its owner, but by the whole world.

The famous feline named Tombili has been immortalized with the erection of its own statue. Tombili became famous when someone took and shared a photo of the cat lounging in a very relaxed pose on Istanbul's streets.

The cat soon rose to considerable internet fame and so when it died in August 2016, it was decided that it be honoured in real life.
